Don’T Buy One In Pheinix

Keeps excellent time… and keeps track of Daylight Savings Time — except in Phoenix, AZ, where Daylight Savings Time is not observed. So you have to go through the annoying process of resetting your watch — but your watch knows the time in your time zone and within a day, changes your watch to Mountain Standard to Daylight Savings Time the next day. So you have to change time zones…

I'm a retired US Navy Parachute Rigger and spent 22 years maintaining the ejection seat mounted parachutes/survival kits and every piece of flight equipment a US Navy and US Marine Corps Aviator will wear, including the HGU-33 flight helmet used by the Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Team (the visor should be gold instead of chrome but I understand ;-). This watch has been on my watch "Bucket List" for 2 year, and now one is mine. It's beautiful and I'm proud to wear it, but maybe not for the fact that it's a Citizen... The folks at the jewelry store didn't know how to set it and there was no instruction manual in the enormous beautiful box. They did adjust the bracelet and when I saw the small metal working hammer come out to drive the pins back in, I cringed but it was too late and they removed a link from both sides and damaged both sides. I took hours of searching the internet to find very little on setting the watch but finally found a video on citizenwatch.com that mentioned manual adjusting if a radio link failed allowing me to set "Daylight Saving". Then I registered the watch only to realize that the "VERY COOL" metal limited edition ID card didn't match my watch. The card indicated 2951/9999 and the case back indicated 1690/9999. Then I wondered if they 9999 were manufactured over multiple years, because I couldn't discern a date of manufacture. Can Citizen tell me more? I was hoping for a card that matched the watch, but that may not be possible. And lastly, the laser etching (I'm guessing laser) is blurred on some of the numbers and letters, specifically the movement identifier isn't as legible as one would hope for a new expensive Citizen watch. I think this one is number "Two" from top-of-the-line Promaster, just under the Titanium version which I'm sure is actually available in the Blue Angel configuration. So, maybe I'll be able to find a new bracelet to install someday after putting a few bucks back into the Parachute Rigger's indulgent cookie jar. I would have gladly provided pictures but the option to do so was not working.

Not the blue that I was expecting

Nice watch 1995 out of 9999 but really disappointed of the blue not showing like the pictures

Citizen Response While colors may vary, the photo you shared does look a bit different, perhaps due to the lighting, but we will be taking a closer look at the image on our website and will compare it with the actual watch. We hope you are enjoying wearing your new Promaster Skyhawk Blue Angels timepiece and all the advanced features. 1995 is a great number, too!

Nice watch, no helmet case

Just got this watch today. Everything is great except it did not come with the helmet case that was advertised on the website!

We apologize about the Helmut case that comes with it, but it was on backorder.
